The problem that both Andrey and me are facing (and I'm sure we're not
the only ones) is that to manage users with samba3+openldap there were
several tools available, both command line and web based (e.g. I'm
currently using an old version of ldap account manager so that
non-technical staff can manage users).
Now that I'm planning a migration to samba 4 I see that there are no
ready made tools to do the same. Yes, you can do everything with ADUC
but you have to install it first and then the sequence of steps to get
everything (AD+unix attributes) right is cumbersome, and even then I
have to write some tools that do the "unixy" things I'm currently doing
automatically once a user is created, like creating a mailbox and a home
Not that I'm complaining, it's just something I have to keep in mind and
allocate time for.
